The ending of your story is what leaves a lasting impression.
So, how good are your endings?
You're about to learn how to make them great.
With so much on the line, crafting the perfect ending to your story is a daunting - even intimidating - task.
But what if we told you that it's actually really, really simple to stick the landing on any kidlit manuscript and create an ending that's powerful and memorable?
Thanks to the breakthrough research of author and educator Jes Trudel we now know that almost all successful kidlit books use one of these five endings :
- The HAPPILY EVER AFTER
- The SWEET SURPRISE
